Ethical and Undiluted - Pure Mysore Sandalwood
As the situation for Indian sandalwood gets worse, with over and early harvesting, high global demand, and illegal trade, it's an essential oil that's hard to come by ethically. It's a special treat to be able to offer this particular essential oil, approved by the Indian government for exporting, harvested under strict regulations, produced from older trees, and considered the best sandalwood in the world.
One small drop goes for hours. Woody, musky, creamy, nutty, rich, and long lasting.
Some Information About Sandalwood
There are 18 grades of sandalwood oil, ranging from the heartwood, chips, and dust. These grades refer to the part of the tree that was distilled, rather than the quality of the oil. The heartwood and large roots of the sandalwood tree are distilled to make an aromatic essential oil, rich in chemical components that lend to it's beautiful scent, and therapeutic value. It is only after thirty years of maturity does the sandalwood tree produce a superior oil.
